Oh, Waluigi, the iconic villain with a twisted sense of humor and a flair for mischief. Today we’re diving into the eccentric style of this beloved anti-hero. With his oversized purple hat, long, pointy mustache, and a penchant for causing mayhem, Waluigi is an excellent choice for your next cosplay event or Halloween party. Let’s get started.
How to Dress Like Waluigi
To dress up like Waluigi for that next Comic-Con or Halloween party, you’ll need the following items:
- Denim or black overalls; the character has two large yellow buttons at the top of the overalls, which you might want to purchase as well.
- Long-sleeved crew-neck T-shirt in purple.
- Elf shoes in either bright orange or yellow-gold.
- White Super Mario gloves; you may always want to get some self-adhesive removable letters in yellow and place an inverted “L” on each of the gloves.
- Purple Waluigi hat with a white dot in the center and an inverted “L” inside of the dot; again, use your self-adhesive letters to do this if you’re making the costume yourself.
- Fake, long mustache that points up at the ends.
- Pointed nose and elf ears.
Waluigi is known for his unique and recognizable wardrobe, which prominently features a pair of denim or black overalls. The overalls are a key component of the Waluigi cosplay look and should be a top priority when putting together your costume.
To make your overalls look as authentic as possible, you might want to purchase and attach two large yellow buttons at the top of the overalls, which are a signature design element of the character’s outfit.
To complete the upper body of your Waluigi costume, you will want to wear a long-sleeved crew-neck T-shirt in a deep purple color. This color will complement the overalls and other elements of the costume. You can purchase a plain purple T-shirt or dye an existing one to match Waluigi’s color scheme.
A pair of elf shoes are a must-have when it comes to nailing the Waluigi look. The shoes should be either bright orange or yellow-gold, as these are the colors most associated with the character.
You can purchase these shoes or make them yourself. If you’re making your own shoes, it is important to pay attention to the details like the pointy toe and the buckle on the side.
Waluigi’s gloves are white with a yellow L on it. You can purchase Super Mario gloves or make your own by taking white gloves and adding a yellow L on it. You can use self-adhesive removable letters to do this if you’re making the costume yourself.
The hat is also an important component of the Waluigi cosplay look. The hat should be purple, with a white dot in the center and an inverted “L” inside the dot. As with the gloves, you can purchase a hat or make your own, using self-adhesive letters to add the white dot and inverted “L” to the hat.
Waluigi is also known for his iconic mustache that is fake and long. The mustache should point up at the ends and will help you achieve the character’s unmistakable look.
Nose and Ears
To really complete the look of Waluigi, you may want to add pointed nose and elf ears. This can be achieved by using makeup, prosthetics or by purchasing a pair of prosthetic ears and nose. These small details will help you capture Waluigi’s unique appearance.
Don’t forget to bring Waluigi’s mischievous spirit and devilish grin to your cosplay. Practice your best “Waaah!” in front of the mirror and get ready to step into the role of the charming trickster.
